The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) on Tuesday said it will coordinate with the concerned department regarding reports that some USD370 million in dirty money were sneaked into the country with the help of erring military and police and airport officers.

“Officially we have heard that report only coming from the media, wala tayong tuwirang impormasyon (we don’t have information) right now kung meron ba tayong (if there) AFP personnel na nakaassign dun for that period (assigned there during the alleged period where the money was sneaked in the country),” AFP spokesperson Marine Brig. Gen. Edgard Arevalo said in an interview with reporters.

He added that it is too early for them to comment on the issue pending their own verification or investigation on the matter.

The Bureau of Customs earlier said the money was brought in the country between December 17, 2019 and January this year by a Chinese group.

“So allow us to check ano, coordinate with the department concerned to gather sufficient information para makapaggawa tayo ng sarili nating verification (to make our own verification),” Arevalo added.

He also said that the AFP will not tolerate its personnel involved in such illegal activities. (PNA)
